    I have the same problem, display getting to dim to read even at night. The unit is a Samsung model MO1450WA. Would you have a replacement display for this unit?

    Thanks

    No adjustment is usually available, but please reply back with your brand and full model number.

    I may be able to let you know if the display can be replaced and give you an estimate.

I have a Sharp Carousel 1.5kW microwave oven with model number R-310F(W)C. The LCD dispaly on my unit recently became very dim. After check the small circuit board on the front panel, I found that the problem is caused by the LCD backlight driver which drives three surface mount LEDs. As the LED driver is inside a chip built on a small daughter card, it requires a replacement daughter card, or the entire circuit board for display and keyboard. A simple alternative solution is to cut the link between the three LEDs and their driver, then build a small circuit to drive the LEDs. I can provide the circuit diagram if interested.

Adjust display brightness on frigidaire PLMV168


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the display on your Frigidaire microwave, model# PLMV168, is dim and you are wondering if there is a way to make it brighter. There is not a way to make the display on your microwave brighter. That is the particular design of your appliance. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your microwave status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-

Dim display light brightness


Hi,

You will need to replace the display, call Dacor first to see if they will assist in a price break or replacement part. They are normally good with there customers. But there is no way to adjust the display, its just fading over time, like a light bulb.

I hope this helps

The owner's manual (here) does not mention that as a feature, so I would assume the oven has a defect and would need to be returned to your dealer to be exchanged under warranty.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Digital display lighting


The solution depends first on the type of display your microwave has. Please refer to the picture. The left side shows a partially defective LCD type display. If you have this type of display, we regularly repair them for $32.50 nationwide. The right side is a VFD type display which is weak due to age. On some brands and models, we are able to get a replacement display tube and repair it to a like-new brightness. Feel free to e-mail me at _ if you have other questions.
